When Is there Too Much Ceremony? and What about the Pentecost Vigil?

Too much ceremony? Can there be too much?

I believe there can be, which brings me to the subject of the Vigil of Pentecost.

The Vigil of Pentecost contains a number of rituals not normally seen in Western churches these days, to say nothing of Lutheran churches.

Is this a bit too much? Frankly, right now I think so.

The full text of this article, with some of the details of the Vigil Ceremony, is posted over at Gottesblog.
